A few from last weekend:

This one I am going to reshoot with a larger focal length lens and create a panorama as I would like the buildings to be larger... Anyway :








That telescope shot is a classic double take.. luvit! Well done.

Thanks. I was hoping you weren't going to say that.. lol.

The 1st & 2nd shots are very nice - for me. I love the soft bokeh. But I expected the 2nd shot to be the sigma so it's a nice surprise to hear that it's the 55. The bokeh of the 55 is a bit nervous in most of the shots I've seen and was the main reason I bought the Sigma 50 F/1.4 instead. I suppose the background (per se) does have an influence though - it's not always a B&W thing.

Cheers
Steve

The DA*55 can produce very smooth bokeh if desired

The service road at a local shopping centre. I wonder if they would mind if I started my own Grand Prix event there on weekends? ;-)

philby85 - great sunrise shots!

Here's one of my daughter, surrounded by Christmas trees. I can't stop with the Silver Efex. And so happy with the ISO performance of this camera.

1/100; f/2.8; ISO 2500

Thanks Frederic.. I 'cheated' a bit by cropping though. The original shot is much bigger and you can see the people in the car. I'm starting to think I need a larger format because I seem to be doing quite a bit of cropping in LR3 and I doubt the prints could go very large as a result.
